Cherwell District Council’s Build! programme worked with Sylva Bespoke Design and Build Solutions to bring 21 customised units to market at Newton Close, Bicester. The project was a testing ground for Cherwell, enabling it to review options for a self-build model for homes in groups.
The 21 shared-ownership units also tested an afforadable model, with the build cost working out at £90,000 per unit, with a 12 month build time. This was achieved with a shell model that the self-builders then helped fit out.
